At its May 6 meeting, the Humboldt County Republican Central Committee unanimously endorsed Ron Nehring for Lieutenant Governor in the June 3 primary election.

In his campaign Nehring has been endorsed by 24 Republican county central committees, the California Republican Assembly, the California Young Republican Federation, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, Republican Assembly Leader Connie Conway and several other legislators.

About his vision for the Lieutenant Governor’s office, Nehring says, “It is what the holder makes of it. Gavin Newsom uses it as a taxpayer-funded gubernatorial exploratory committee for 2018. I believe it should be a platform to develop and advocate for the bold reforms California needs to restore the state’s competitiveness: in taxes, pensions and education.”

Nehring was twice elected chairman of the California Republican Party (2007-11), served on the board of trustees of San Diego County’s Grossmont Union High School District, one of the largest in the state, and was appointed by Governor Schwarzengegger to the California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection.
